I am notoriously hard on books like this. There are so many MC books out there right now, as well as alpha badass males. They are done often but rarely done well. I would say this book, as was book one, is grittier than most. It deals in heavy topics and is done well, but still failed to make me feel a connection to the characters. This is the complicated story of Kendall Miller. She attempted to infiltrate the Death Dwellers and hook up with their President, “Outlaw”, at his bachelor party in order to help free her sister from the clutches of an evil man by the name of Logan Donovan. Problem is, instead of hooking up with Outlaw, she ends up hooking up with the VP of the club, John-Boy. But Johnnie is unaware of her agenda, and when he is left in charge of the MC while the President and his new bride are on their honeymoon he is faced with some trouble from a rival MC it all comes out. Will Kendall save her sister? Will Johnnie and Kendall be able to find happiness together? First of all, be warned that this is a very violent and extremely graphic book. I thought it was much more graphic from the first book, which was tough to read at points. I appreciate the book for its raw grittiness, and in that respect I think it’s true to the MC sub-genre. My real problem with this book is the characters. I liked Johnnie; he had a backbone and seemed to have a heart. It was really Kendall that rubbed me the wrong way. She is an attorney, but for someone so educated she is truly stupid. The choices she makes throughout the book had me just wanting to slap her upside the head. I don’t want to give away any plot points, but she does one thing during the course of this book that totally killed any possibility of me ever liking her. It’s tough, I know, but when you read it I hope you’ll know to what I’m referring. The saving grace of this book is that it’s a very well told story. Even though I didn’t care for most of the characters, I also found that I could not put the book down. I had to see what happened. Plus, there are flashbacks that help you to understand some of the backstory of the series better. I liked that. Overall, I did enjoy this book. I found that I actually liked it better than the first book in the series, even if the heroine wasn’t so great. 3.5 stars.

Combined review with books 1.5 and 2 for The Reading Cafe 24 May 14  5 out of 5 for this reader folks! OK!  Harder book review to write, simply because this is one of the grittiest motorcycle club (MC) series I have ever read.  I do have to write a small disclaimer here as this is certainly the farthest from PG reading one can get.  If you are squimish and/or sensitive (keep reading to find out what there is to be squimish about) in the least, take a pass on this series.  If you are open to reading about harsh violence, rape, language, law breaking, controversial everything, hot biker dudes that are serious bad ass, tight brotherhood and a storyline that just keeps you page flipping or screen swiping, then you may want to check this out.  I am a boundary pushing reader and appreciate an author who will lay it all out and not apologize for it.  Well Kathryn Kelly does all of this in her Death Dwellers MC Series.  I LOVE THIS RAW READ, will reread and anticipate future releases.  My shock buttons were most assuredly pushed and while I am not by any means "in the know" of how MC clubs are truely ran, I would dare say this may be a little more accurate than some of the "rainbow glitter" versions out there (which BTW are quite a great read as well and ones I enjoy more than often). Now I hope I haven't scared you off, but there is a need to be honest.  This series really rocked my world and the "WOW, the author went there!" factor was in the forefront. The Death Dweller series by Kathryn Kelly is about the Death Dweller motorcycle club consisting of men and woman that live their lives according to a brotherhood and a code.  Their lives are drenched in violence, they march to the beat of their own drum, live by their own laws, are in constant conflict, engage in drugs and alcohol and in the midst of it all, are hooking up with their future "old lady". BOOK 1 - Misled DESCRIPTION He deals in a world of violence, sex, drugs, and crudity. As president of the Death Dwellers' MC, Christopher "Outlaw" Caldwell presides over a club in chaos after the death of their longtime president and his mentor, Joseph "Boss" Foy. Megan Foy runs from her abusive stepfather, hoping for her daddy's intervention to save her and get her terrified mother away before it's too late. Only problem is, she soon discovers her beloved daddy is dead and the man who killed him is the man she's falling in love with. Warning: FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY. CONTAINS PHYSICAL ABUSE, VIOLENCE, RAPE, AND EXCESSIVE PROFANITY. REVIEW Megan Foy has not lived a life most woman would brag about.  She is the daughter  of the former president of The Death Dwellers MC.   While she has lived away from the club, she has been a victim of abuse by her stepfather.  Finally pushed to leave her home, Megan goes to find her father for help.  When she runs into the new president Christopher "Outlaw" Caldwell, she is stunned to discover that her father is dead.  While there is chemistry between Megan and Outlaw, there are too many factors that prevent Outlaw from claiming  Megan as his "old lady".  The biggest factor is that Outlaw is responsible for her father's death.  This doesn't mean he isn't claiming Megan every other way and keeping her close to his side.  This is a tumultuous time for the club with war on the horizon and betrayal so large that one needs to concentrate on surviving before one can start living. BOOK 1.5 -  Misappropriate DESCRIPTION Megan Foy is finally getting the big wedding she's dreamed of. With her new child and the affection of the brothers of the Death Dwellers' MC, her life is settling down. However, a new threat rides into town and targets Christopher "Outlaw" Caldwell, forcing him to re-evaluate his life once more and endangering everyone. Most of all, it threatens Meggie's newfound peace. REVIEW Well, once Outlaw decides to claim Megan it's "all in" with the baby and the wedding.  Megan is realizing how much her life has changed when she faces the challenges of being the The Death Dwellers presidents "old lady", mother to the treasured "little man", and trying to plan her wedding and get all her hard ass MC biker boys in tuxedos.  On top of all this, her mother is acting like an idiot stick and Outlaws dad is back in town and trying to get rid of her.  With the odds stacked against her, Megan rises up and shows her new family just what she is made of ... rainbows and unicorns have no place here!  LOL BOOK 2 - Misunderstood DESCRIPTION John Donovan has been left in charge of the Death Dwellers' MC while the club president is on his honeymoon. With six days left till Outlaw's return and smooth sailing so far, trouble suddenly bubbles up. As the clock ticks, he's determined to bring everything under control. Kendall Miller, an attorney and the ex-girlfriend of another MC president, is in deep problems. When her little sister is taken by her ex, she needs to supply information to a man who is frantic for information on the highest ranking members of Johnnie's club. When she suddenly shows up at the clubhouse and arouses the suspicions of a very handsome blond biker, she finds herself being taken as his prisoner.  Evil is all around them. To save herself and her sister, Kendall has to rely on the man she betrayed. To save his club, Johnnie has to trust Kendall's story. Before it's too late. Because lives will be lost and hearts will be broken.  WARNING: This isn’t an easy or light read. Please be advised. The way to Johnnie’s and Kendall’s resolution involves death, violence, destruction, a sexual assault scene and suicide. REVIEW Johnnie ... SIGH!  Yup he is the yummy biker.  We met him in book 1 as he is Outlaws cousin, a member of the Death Dwellers, but he was raised educated, a more "proper" than his biker brothers.  Although considered refined, he is still all bad biker.  Now the VP, he is acting P when Megan and Outlaw are on their honeymoon and the quiet couple of weeks he was hoping for are nothing but a wish.  You know what is about to hit the fan, and it all surrounds the mysterious woman that had offered to become the clubs lawyer.  Kendall is the ex-girlfriend of an opposing club, and soon finds herself having to do things she wouldn't dream of doing in order to save her sister.  This means infiltrating the Death Dwellers and engaging the VP.  Well while the flames are fanned between John and Kendall, a whole bunch of violence and trouble comes between them, leaving them with the doubt that things could ever work between them. I really had trouble putting this series down.  There are some serious LOL moments and the things that come out of these bikers mouths are at times nothing short of hilarious.  There was also never a real HEA, more like HFN, but considering the lifestyle the HEA just wouldn't fit.  The sex is hot, the language crude and the grit REALLY GRITTY!  Loved IT! :) HAPPY READING! :)

Misunderstood, Death Dwellers' MC; Book 2, Kathryn Kelly Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews **WARNING SPOILERS** I love good contemporary romance, and have read some cracking biker books, so asked for this. Still, having read it I wondered if I was going to be alone in really not enjoying it....and it seems this is a Marmite series, one you either love or hate. Maybe hate is too strong, but certainly dislike. So what went wrong for me? Well, Kendall – an attorney so supposedly an intelligent woman, and yet ends up in the situation she's in? No one from her work notices her biker boyfriend whacking her about? Taking her away when she's due in court? The woman herself is one of those TSTL heroines, and I can't be doing with them. **WARNING SPOILERS** She's just seen her mum kill herself, her little sister is still in the capture of the MC her boyfriend heads up, and she knows sis is facing rape and death, and yet what does she do? Go for help? No....takes on the job and flakes out again, and again, and again. When she does get caught and questioned by Johnny ( her “saviour” in her mind) does she tell him all and ask him for help? After all she thinks he's a hero, and she's in love with him? No..Does she find a way to escape and search for sister? No, even though she's unrestrained and in the house alone, it seems it's far more important to wait for him to return and have more hot sex....Jonny was still so fixated on Meg I didn't see where the connection between them could go, and how they'd ever have any kind of relationship. I can take the violence, murders, sexual elements, the bad language, ( though even for a biker book that was extreme) and the fact that they all spoke in weird, cut off sentences...but the whole thing, murders, kidnapping, the back and forth between Spoon's club and the DDs was just simply far too OTT. It was a series of disjointed incidences that didn't add up, didn't make sense and the sex seemed to be thrown in simply to make the book “erotic”. Well for me I need more. Sex that fits the story, plots that make sense, and are realistic ( seriously all those murders, bombings, beatings, fires where the police and fire-squad are attending, and it all gets passed over by a few backhanders? Unreal IMO. So that's it – a book some will love and some like me will simply feel Meh, unreal, didn't like it. Stars: Sorry, just two. ARC received via Netgalley

I loved the first book but this one was all over the place no concise direction and no formating. This is the first time I actually couldnt finish the book. I couldnt figure out where the main characters where or what they were doing. It was like they were multiple places at once.

Another excellent addition to this fabulous series! Not for the faint of heart, this book is full of sex,death and rowdy bikers! This book was full of twist and turns and had we on the edge of my seat. Johnnie is left in charge of the club while Christopher (Outlaw) is away on his honeymoon and all hell breaks loose, old enemies return and nothing was as it seems! Kendall's sister is taken and in order to get her back she is suppose to get close to Christopher but gets on Johnnie's radar! What happens when he finds out? Will she trust Johnnie to help her? Will secrets of the past surface and destroy everyone! I loved this book and can't wait to see what happens next!
